Steelers Have Longest Streak in NFL Without Losing Season

Published

on

The Pittsburgh Steelers have plenty of uncertainty ahead of them beyond 2021, but one thing they have always been under head coach Mike Tomlin is consistent.

It has been 17 years since Pittsburgh last had a losing record, the longest active streak in the NFL.

That streak is not particularly close either. The team with the next longest stretch is the Seattle Seahawks with nine-straight winning seasons. The Kansas City Chiefs are just behind them at eight.

Pittsburgh streak puts them on the cusp of history as well.

The record for the most consecutive non-losing seasons in NFL history is 21 owned by Tom Landry’s Dallas Cowboys.

The Steelers had been going head-to-head with the New England Patriots in pursuit of the record, but their 2020 campaign ended with a 7-9 season last year. They had gone 20 consecutive seasons without a losing record.

Now the door has been left open for Pittsburgh to snatch the record away from their long-time rivals.

Still, it will not be easy, and 17-straight winning seasons has not been some simple feat. Plus Pittsburgh could be without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as soon as next season, which could complicate things as well.
